ALBANY, GA (WALB) – South Georgia health officials are waiting on test results from a death that may be the area's second flu-related this season.
At Phoebe Putney's Emergency Room, they say it's not unusual to have five to 10 patients come in a day with the flu. Last weekend, they diagnosed nearly 70-patients with the flu. Georgia is one of only four states that has seen regional flu outbreaks. Health officials still urge those who haven't received a flu shot to get one.
"We continue to be disappointed in the large numbers of people who whatever reason choose not to get the flu shot. We find that the resistance to getting the flu shot even after the H1N1 last year is to me inexplicable," said Dr. Doug Patten, PPMH V.P. of Medical Affairs.
Two weeks ago, 37-year old Shannon Cook, a Lee County mother with no prior health problems, died from the flu. More than 200 flu cases have been confirmed in the southwest health district so far, the largest number in Colquitt and Dougherty Counties. Many doctor's offices are closed, but Phoebe's Convenient Care will remain open through 5:00 PM Christmas Eve. Doctors say if your symptoms are severe, you should go to the emergency room.
